Concrete is Good for so Much More than Floors

Did you know…..?

Concrete is a very popular material for high-end counter-tops, sinks, fireplaces as well as floors

The fact that concrete can withstand water with ease has made it a popular choice for garden décor and outdoor furniture. But concrete can be used to beautify the inside of the home, too. Concrete’s incredible versatility and durability makes it the perfect building material for custom countertops, sinks, and fireplaces.

And concrete floors can be a surprisingly economical way to give any indoor living space a sleek, contemporary look that’s low-maintenance and that will take a lifetime of wear and tear.

and it looks GREAT.!

FYI….. Concrete and cement are not the same.

Concrete is a mixture of 60 – 65% aggregates like sand, gravel, and crushed stone, 15 – 20% water, and only 10 – 15% cement. When mixed, the cement and water harden, binding the aggregates into the solid mass we call concrete. So, there is no such thing as a cement sidewalk!

I love it when a plan comes together.!

What’s your favourite colour?

I remember from long ago when some homes had a “stoep” and that it was stained with RED stoep polish. Often this had to be ‘updated’ every year. It was also common back then to find the same red polish on the floors of the local cafe’ or grocery store, and on almost every garage floor. Concrete floor red polish

Concrete floors have come a long way since then.

These days we do not use a coloured polish on grey concrete but offer many better alternatives, almost too many to mention. These are: liquid or powdered colour pigments mixed in the concrete itself; high density concrete coloring pigments & stamping release agents; colour hardeners; colour dyes and/or colour stains, and exposed aggregate. Combined, these options provide 100’s of colour shades to choose from. Done professionally this colour will last as long as the floor itself.

Concrete floors are far from being BORING!

Polished concrete is considered a good sustainable design flooring option because it makes use of the materials already present. Most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab; polishing the exposed concrete eliminates the energy and additional material costs consumed by applying a floor covering. It is something to consider when building or modernizing towards a more green solution.

New Project Announcement

We are proud to announce that 180 Degrees Concrete Floor Services has been appointed by Power Construction to carry out the new concrete floor installation at the Rhodes Cannery Plant in Franschoek.

Project scope includes delivery of more than 2000 cubic meters of concrete to raft foundations, concrete overlays, suspended slabs and new concrete hardstands.

Thank you! Power Construction for awarding us this project and putting your trust in us to complete this project successfully with you.

Beautifully Polished Concrete Floor

Take your concrete floor to the next level!

Polished concrete has become the ultimate flooring material for big box retailers, warehouses, convention halls and production facilities around the world. Thanks to us, concrete floors can now be polished fast and cost-effectively.

Beauty and Gloss
The process gives concrete a high degree of shine, similar to polished marble. The end result may be called “micro terazzo” surface, as fine aggregates become partly visible. Mirror glossy floor reflects light, and doesn’t require any wax or coating.

Dust-free and easy to clean
After our polishing process the surfaces are 100% dust-free, as dirt and grime can no longer collect on the concrete. Polishing reduces the need to clean and makes maintenance easier and faster.

Abrasion resistant
The process increases concrete’s abrasion resistance, so that the floor can hold better heavy forklift and foot traffic. Polished concrete can’t peel, chip or flake like epoxy coatings or painted floors. Polished concrete has a longer lifespan than materials such as vinyl composite tile (VCT) or upgraded stone tiles; it only needs to be refinished once every five to ten years.

Save time and money
Construction schedules are usually very tight, often not leaving enough time for traditional grinding and polishing. Our team can produce over 10,000 sq ft of polished concrete in one working day.

There is no need for strong chemicals in our process or later in maintenance. Our polished concrete flooring qualifies for LEED credits.
